The 2017 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Standard is a greatest hits collection of sorts. By pulling inspiration from many eras of their storied history, Gibson has managed to identify all the characteristics of a great Les Paul and put all them into one irresistible-looking package. Their hide-glue construction and premium tone woods make them some of the most resonant, lively instruments we’ve had the privilege of playing. You don’t just see the difference–you FEEL it, too. Obsessively perfect, ultra-accurate aesthetic appointments compliment stellar finish options like aniline-dyed 1-piece mahogany backs, historically-accurate deluxe Kluson tuners, and gorgeous maple tops to create instruments that look and feel like vintage instruments. Additionally, they’ve given each guitar a historically-accurate serial number to add to the vintage-correct presentation. A pair of so-close-to-vintage-it’s-scary Custom Buckers complete the package by unleashing the glorious, ultra-rich harmonic content of these phenomenal instruments. The Wildwood Guitars team is beyond excited about the 2017 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Standard, and we are thrilled to offer such an exceptional collection of guitars to our exceptional customers!
